The Premier League champions Chelsea will be one of the last sides in the top flight to officially unveil their new kit ahead of the new campaign. However, it appears that fans can already see the strip that Jose Mourinho’s side will be wearing for their title defence.
The Blues tweeted this morning to announce that the new kit will be revealed in just over a week’s time, after posting a picture that depicted blue smoke around some of the key first-team players, including Diego Costa, Eden Hazard, and Gary Cahill.

Here is a look at the shirt:
